Chile con Carne Recipe

There are many different recipes for chili in the recipe books. I guess this Chile con Carne Recipe is a little different because it incorporates some ingredients I don’t usually use. This chili recipe is a little time consuming because it does call for an hour of cooking time on low temperature. The seasoning and combination of peppers blend very well together creating chili that is a little bit on the hot side. If you like you chili seasoned hot; just change the salsa to hot instead of mild, and increase the amount of Jalapenos used in the recipe. For me the recipe was seasoned perfect as written.

Winter doesn’t want to give up in most parts of the country so a hot bowl of Chile tastes real good on a cold winter night-give this Chile con Carne Recipe a try, it’s really good. Enjoy

Chili Beef and Noodles Recipe

When I saw this Chili Beef and Noodles Recipe the first thing that came to my mind was Chili Mac because of the use of the chili seasoning and pasta; but it is quite a bit different. The combination of flavors seems to kind of balance between chili and pasta sauce but you could easily sway it one way or another by increasing or decreasing some of the seasoning. This is a simple recipe and you can have dinner on the table in less than an hour. I thought for a one dish recipe, that this Chili Beef and Noodles Recipe was pretty good; my wife loved it, and is looking forward to having it again.

I you in need for a quick one dish meal, or just want to try something a little different, give this Chili Beef and Noodles Recipe a try. Enjoy

I’m not a big lover of cornbread, but once in awhile for a change I do enjoy it. When I saw this Chili Beef Bake casserole Recipe I thought it looked pretty good, and I would give it a try. Everything is mixed together and the cornbread mixture borders the casserole. Hot sauce provides a little heat for the recipe, which was about right for me. If you want to turn the heat up a little bit, just add more hot sauce, or cayenne pepper to taste. I’ll have to admit this is not the best looking dish I have photographed however the recipe itself was good enough that I thought I should post it.

So if you’re in the mood for something different, give this Chili Beef Bake Casserole Recipe a try.

Wendy’s Chili Recipe

This is a knock off of Wendy’s Chili Recipe. To be honest it has been a long time since I have had a bowl of  Wendy’s Chili, but I do believe it comes pretty close. This is a delicious combination of flavors with not much prep time, but you do have to allow ample amount of time for simmering the chili. This recipe will serve about 12 people and would be a great dish for a cold Foot Ball Sunday afternoon-just add a few corn chips. Enjoy
